*NEWS: NarrativeWave Partners With Black & Veatch to Jointly Develop Smart Analytics for Europe’s Water Utilities

An Irvine SaaS startup has partnered with a sustainable infrastructure company to develop smart analytics tools to serve European water and wastewater clients.

NarrativeWave, with HQ in Irvine, joined with Black & Veatch, a UK company that builds infrastructure tools in the energy, water, telecommunications and government sectors.

The jointly-developed tools will be deployed via Black & Veatch’s ECO-X, Black & Veatch’s cloud-based digital ecosystem in Europe.

This ecosystem enables integration with partners like NarrativeWave to provide digitally-enabled asset management tools, which are “easily” connected with water industry clients’ existing IT systems, according to Black & Veatch in a press release issued last week.

NarrativeWave’s focus includes water utilities, as well as the renewable and conventional power generation industries.

The startup’s tech combines sensor data to deliver “critical” information to decision makers through a SaaS application. See recent article on NarrativeWave here.

Benjamin Decio is the CEO of NarrativeWave.
